A $34 million luxury yacht is now at the bottom of the sea after falling off a cargo ship

In an unfortunate series of events, a luxury superyacht was missing at sea, after it slid off a cargo ship and disappeared into the Mediterranean Sea.

My Song, a 130-foot-yacht owned by fashion heir Pier Lugo Loro Piana was on its final leg of transportation from the Spanish town of Mallorca to Genoa in Italy, before the devastating accident.

Maritime tracking denotes that the superyacht had paved its way through the Atlantic, all the way from the Caribbean. An image of the yacht did later appear on the news, but it was half-submerged at sea.
